Better Late Than Never (Gustytail’s Raid Team) defeated Heroic Sarkareth, final boss in Aberrus for their Ahead of the Curve achievement.

Let’s Go Skating has now also killed Heroic Sarkareth and is AOTC!

HFO just got ahead of the curve as well

Noob Raid is at 7/9 in Aberrus currently. We’ve made a couple of attempts at the 8th boss, but are still working on that one.

A huge amount of new content arrives Tuesday with patch 10.1.5 Fractures in Time. There’s a megadungeon – Dawn of the Infinite, Time Rifts world events, Whelp Daycare dailies and the Kalimdor Cup dragonriding races with mounts, transmog and battle pets to be obtained.

In addition, Allied Races will all be unlocked. The opening quests for Lightforged Draenei and Vulpera are some of Gustyail’s favorites.

Drakthyr are getting a third spec: Augmentation, bringing a variety of buffs to the party. All races (except Drakthyr) can now be warlocks and there are cool new customizations available for demons.

And Cross Realm trading will now be available for players in the same region. This should benefit low population servers like Earthen Ring as well cross realm groups that do raids and dungeons together.

WoW Classic

Summer time, so quiet in the guild. On a raiding break right now, as several raiders have multiple commitments outside of the game. We are all hoping to be back at it by mid to late August, as summer winds down.


Don’t forget about Nar Shadaa Nightlife coming July 11th! Guildies are still playing in the new area on Voss or working their ways toward it. Many guildies have now finished Galactic Season 4 with some still working on it. There’s still time!


Cool things the guild has been doing:
We’ve been spending time running dungeons to level up our new Arcanists and checking out the new zones that were part of the Necrom chapter release
We’ve been working on Trials again and having a lot of fun doing so even though we usually have less than 12 people.

Current ToT standings
1st Malakyi and Dankinia at 3-1
3rd DPRoberts and Newtype at 2-2
5th Bashirra and Kraemer at 1-3


Still in the middle of the Risa event. Highly recommended if you need a ground fighting equipment build.


This coming Friday night is dungeons and more night. Starting at 8pm central. All are welcome
